Forum: GratefulDead Subject: non-Dead: Anyone get their Janis Joplin cd yet?

I was just wondering if any of you who ordered that Janis Joplin show that Bear recorded had received it yet? I don't have any patience at all when I order things on the internet or from catalogs so I probably just need to relax and wait, but two weeks seems like more than enough time to ship a cd to someone. I saw on Bear's website that the signed cd is now $50 and I ordered mine for $20, so I'm kinda worried that maybe my order won't go through.

I got it within days of ordering from the Bear site.

Now I'm worried. Did you order the signed cd or the regular one?

Signed by the cover artist, Stanley Mouse.

I e-mailed them yesterday to see what was up, and it turned out that there was a glitch when it first went on sale and you had to select the cd as well as the signature (I only selected the signature). It's fixed now, and they were cool enough to honor the price that I mistakenly paid. I thought that $20 for a signed cd shipped to me was too good to be true, but $35.50 is still pretty dang good (it's $55.50 now).

Imagine if you'd gotten just a signature in the mail!

"Thank you for purchasing this exclusive signature. A CD is also available for an extra $15..."

LOL...thanks for the laugh. They probably could have done that or just cancelled my order, so I'm pretty happy with how things worked out. Since I got the cheaper signed cd I went ahead and bought an additional unsigned one to support the cause, so now I'll have a great gift ready to go. :)

All I can say is "whewww..."

Just mindlessly reading threads, per usual, eh?, I noticed "ack! I always worry about this shit too!" so am glad to see it all worked out...

And, the signature stuff is funny...ie, another "dead person signature" possibility...? ON an item that didn't exist when they did? Great marketing possibilities.

Now THAT's a BIZ model!
